Apple Bundt Cake
A deliciously moist apple-flavored pound cake baked until golden brown in a bundt pan.
Did you, according to Juicy Juice, 94% of all parents will prepare at least some (or all!) of the holiday meal themselves this year? Now that we are in full Christmas mode in our home, I have been cooking up a storm so I totally get that! My tried and tested recipes have been planned out for my Christmas bake-a-thon, but I also want to add some new things into the mix. This Apple Bundt Cake made with apple juice is the perfect dense cake recipe for anyone who enjoys a moist slice of cake.
For my apple bundt cake, I used our family’s favorite apple juice which happens to be Juicy Juice 100% Juice. We love that this juice is made with 100% juice and that it tastes amazing! My kids love to enjoy a juice box daily in their lunchboxes.
Juicy Juice 100% Apple Juice was the perfect addition to my apple bundt cake. It helped to give the cake a subtle apple flavor with lots of moisture.
Tips for Making this Apple Bundt Cake:
Can I make a Pound Cake in a Bundt Pan?
Yes, you can! This apple juice cake is essentially a pound cake. It has a moist, dense crumb and a buttery apple flavor.
Can I use Fresh Apples in apple bundt cake?
Yes, you can add finely diced apples to your apple juice bundt cake, but keep in mind, you must squeeze out the excess juice to preserve the cake consistency. Of course you can also use the freshly squeezed apple juice from the diced apples, but you would need a lot of apples to compensate for the 1 cup of juice needed.
Can I substitute brown sugar for white sugar when making apple cake?
You can use light brown sugar or white sugar cup for cup in this recipe. Please note, this might not be the case for every recipe, but I have tried this both ways.
Butter or Shortening to Grease Bundt Pan?
For me, I always feel like butter works best to grease a pan. This gives the outer of a cake a slight crunch, and produces a better taste. Your cake will also slide out nicely once FULLY cooled. Never try to remove a hot cake from a pan!!
As you can see, this Apple Juice Bundt cake turned out nicely. It formed beautifully and cooked exactly for the 70 minutes needed.
I topped my Apple Juice Pound Cake with a simple apple juice icing. To make this I used Juicy Juice 100% Apple Juice and confectioners sugar. You can see the recipe below.
This Apple Cake produces a tight, fine crumb and is dense! In fact, I feel like this cake weighed like 5 lbs!
Enjoy your Apple cake with a hot cup of coffee. It is perfect for tea or coffee because the flavors are not overpowering.
